May not be in all branches but The Works has a couple of heavily discounted 'Boys' books. Jaguar Boys & Hunter Boys, might be of interest to some

Saw Ton up Lancs in our local one yesterday...Pity I'd already paid full price for it when it came out, mind you it is signed by some pilots etc so not too worried.

I picked up a few good ones about a fortnight ago. Lancaster M- Mother, one on the Kipper Patrol and one on the ATA and another on the WAAF. As an aside a friend picked up a cracking little book for me yesterday at East Kirkby event - was only a couple of quid on the military Auster which I haven't seen before. I have found The Works does tend to have some interesting books in this time of year on the lead up to Remembrance Sunday.

I managed to get the last copy of Buccaneer Boys from the Widnes branch for just £7.00 :smile:
a woman phoned the BBC to say that "a hurricane is on the way" Well if you're listening, don't worry it isn't.

Bumping this thread because I noticed today that my local (Sutton Coldfield) branch of The Works has copies of "Cobra! The Attack Helicopter" by Mike Verier for £10. Good book for any AH-1 fans out there.

Popped into my local branch of The Works today. New stock in, amongst other things if interested were Haynes manuals for Typhoons, Tomcats, Spitfires and Wessex. All still £6.
